Andy Rawson

After reading Natural Sciences and Computer Science at Queens' College Cambridge, Andy's early work was in computer graphics and defence systems.

His interest then turned more to business, and in recent years he has specialised in database systems and in particular Data Warehousng and Business Intelligence. Creating an integrated representation of information from multiple sources, and extracting business value from high volume complex data is his forte.

Recently Andy has been helping a major client with spatial processing of telematics data from vehicles, used to assess accident risks and other aspects of driving behaviour.

Overall his industry experience is broad, covering Insurance, Banking, Financial Services, Utilities and Energy Trading, Telecoms, Manufacturing, Retail, Veterinary and Healthcare.

Andy believes that the best results from Business Intelligence projects are usually achieved when business and technical people are able to work closely together.
